The Downside of Self-publishing…and a new release update.

Hi, all. By now you all are used to my few-and-far-between blog updates, right?? :o )

 

So, that title. First, let me just state for the record that I absolutely love that I chose to self-publish. It was, without a doubt, one of the best decisions of my life. But that being said, there is a downside to self-publishing…no absolute deadlines. I choose what I work on and when I work on it.

 

Up until now, I have enforced my planned release dates (for the most part), but that was putting a lot of pressure on everyone who works on my team…graphic designer, editors, beta readers, formatter, proofreader, and ME. So, at the urging of one of my editors, I relaxed those deadlines…a LOT.

 

Right now, we are seeing the result of that relaxation…yeah, probably not the best choice for ME. I have nothing ready to release. I need deadlines. Because without them, I don’t work on the things I don’t want to work on…i.e. the two books that are done and in the polishing stage. They just flat-out need some hard work from ME and I’d rather not. (It’s much more fun to write all new words than fix the words I’ve already written.)

 

So, for those of you that have been emailing and messaging me…thank you. This post is for you. This is going to be a FULL update (read that to mean…this blog post will be a short novella itself because I am working…and juggling a LOT of different projects right now and will tell you where they all stand in the publishing process.)

 

1. THROUGH the VEIL

 

This book…I love this book, but I also hate this book. LOL. This book was my second big writing project (at least out of the ones that will actually be published…lol.) I adore the story and this book sets the stage for 7 other books. So it’s important that I get it right.

 

When I wrote it, my writing ability SUCKED and I wrote the first 35,000 words in 7 days. Yeah, it sucked big-time and it took a LONG time to fix it. Easily, I have read and revised this book 75-100 times over the last two years. I don’t care how much you love a book, that’s too much. So yeah, the thought of opening up this file gives me hives now.

 

But it is good. Both my editors have read it and told me so. My beta readers have read it and gushed overwhelmingly about how much they loved it. It’s even been through the first round of edits (almost…I still have about 40 of those pages left to do.)

 

So what’s the hold-up? After my editor finished the first round of edits on it, she sent me suggestions of little things to make it stronger…three pages worth. Yeah, watch me curl into a little ball and sob on the ground.

 

And I agree with most of her suggestions. The book will be stronger after I make them, but I don’t wanna work on this book any longer.

 

That’s on me.

 

I’m sorry. You should have had this book by now. I want you to have this book. Seriously, this story…I adore it. But right now I just have to find the strength to suck it up and dive deeply into it again and do ANOTHER ROUND of revisions.

 

Soon, I promise. As it stands now, I’m hoping this book will be released by the end of August, but the first of September is probably more realistic.

 

 

2. MUDFLAP UNDERCOVER

Another book where I’m burying my head in the sand and ignoring the file sitting there staring at me. The book is written. It’s so bad right now, I can’t even get through a complete read-through on it.

 

So, yeah, this one is gonna be seriously delayed. I think the book is set-up right…the correct events happen in it. The suspense story line is good, but the entire book feels shallow to read it. It needs a lot more depth between Mudflap and Shanae added to the story.

 

In my defense, this is the first time I’ve written a second book featuring a couple who are already somewhat settled and in love. My hat’s off to authors who write stories about couples over and over. It’s really hard to keep that level of intrigue with love with an established couple. But I have faith that I’ll be able to fix it. I’m just not willing to release it as it is. You all deserve better. Just give me time on that one.

 

 

3. What I’m writing right now…

 

July is a CampNaNoWriMo month….50,000 words in 31 days.

 

This I’m excited about. I am writing on two different books right now simultaneously. I know. Who does that? Right now, I do and I am so excited about both of these books. Neither were in my writing schedule. They just came up, so again, this will slightly alter my schedule some.

 

SECRET PROJECT

 

The first is something completely new for my writing…an erotica BDSM cowboy story. I love my story. It’s chock-full of angst and emotion and a seriously wounded heroine who’s a dominatrix. Yeah, I’m having a ton of fun with this one. There will definitely be more information to come on it. Right now it has 20,000 words written on it. I foresee another 20-30k to go.

 

 

PHOTO OP SERENDIPITY

 

This story is pure inspiration. I follow a gorgeous model, Storm Bailey, on Facebook. He posted a couple of pictures from his photo shoot with Shana Kruse from Kruse Images & Photography. This story came entirely from those photos with Meghan Johnson.

 

It is another romantic suspense story with some twists in it that I’m so excited about. It’s still early days in the writing of it. I have 7000 written right now, but the story is flying out of my brain so I don’t think it will take too long to write it once I settle into it. I’m pretty sure this will be a full-length novel, but we’ll see.

 

My cover designer, the talented Amanda Matthews, has the photos I bought from the photo shoot and is working on the cover right now. So, maybe fairly soon, I will have a blurb and cover reveal to share with you.

 

 

4. Books still to come…

 

RIGHT BY YOUR SIDE

The first Martin Ranch book. This is supposed to be my next scheduled write. It is started…a couple thousand words and this one starts with a huge burst of adrenaline. I am super-excited about this story. I just have to get all my ducks in a row before I truly start to sit down and work on it. The original release date was supposed to be this fall. It might still make that, but probably not. I would say at this point, that this one will be pushed back to a 2015 release date.

 

SNOWCROFT SAFEHOUSE

Did you catch what I just did there? That’s the first time I’ve told anyone the title of book #2 of the Men of Snowcroft series. My cover designer, the talented Amanda Matthews, sent me the cover of this one Friday. I literally squealed when I opened the file. It’s so PERFECT for this amazing story. I can’t wait to write this one.

 

Right now it’s slated for a Jan, 2015 release. I’m hoping to stick with that, because I’m really desperate to write this story…it’s another one that I just LOVE! But because that release is still a ways away, I think I’m gonna sit on the cover and blurb for now. :o ) Come on, you can be patient. It’s worth the wait, I promise.

 

 

So, that’s where I’m at with all my current WIP’s. The upcoming tentative release schedule is as follows:

  1. Through the Veil                     Sept, 2014
  2. Mudflap Undercover                Fall, 2014
  3. Secret Sexy Cowboy Project        Fall, 2014 (tentative)
  4. Photo Op Serendipity                Nov, 2014
  5. Snowcroft Safehouse                 Jan, 2015
  6. Right By Your Side                  Winter, 2015

 

And this blog post hit 1400 words. Can I count that as my writing for today?? Hehe, no, I didn’t think so.

SPECIAL….When the Mission Ends Trilogy Bundle SALE

You know when I first hired my graphic designer for my covers,

she was given one instruction and basic guidance…

My covers had to work with the Top Off Tuesday meme from my Smitten with Reading review blog.

This is a special, limited-time release of the When the Mission Ends trilogy e-book bundle… 
(3 full-length books + 1 novella). 

The military has always been a way of life for the three Robertson siblings: older brother, Colton and twins, Chris and Cassie. Colton and Chris went into the Air Force as pilots and Cassie is a military history professor at Texas Tech University. But when Chris’s jet is shot down in a horrible mission gone wrong, it throws their entire world into disarray—affecting not only their lives, but also the lives of their friends. 
What happens after that mission ends and they have to find a new focus for living? 

Operation: Endgame 
It’s been six months. 

Six months since Jake Madsen let Chris Robertson die. 

Six months since the passion between Jake and Cassie, Chris’ sister, stepped over the line. 

But now Cassie’s being stalked and it’s time for Jake to swallow his guilt, grief, and lust so he can save her life, even if it’s a life without him. He owes it to his dead friend and he owes it to Cassie. He’s fallen in love with her, but she doesn’t have to know that for him to keep her safe. 

Operation: Endeavor 
Colton Robertson left his career in the Air Force… 

… to come home and help his family heal. Unfortunately, his reception was not quite what he’d hoped for and he ended up as roommate to hippy dippy yoga instructor Penelope Pruitt. 

Penelope has spent her life under the restrictive thumb of her parents and she doesn’t want to do the same with the straight-laced, serious Colton. But when it becomes apparent that Penelope’s life is in danger, Colton won’t settle for anyone else protecting Penelope besides him. 

Opposites attract and that’s definitely the case with Colton and Penelope. On the surface, they don’t have anything in common, but as the sparks fly and the danger ramps up, their passion is inevitable. 

Operation: Endurance 
They had a single night of passion before he deployed on a risky mission. 
18 hours on a mission gone very wrong was all it took to shatter all their hopes and dreams. 

The hero: 
He survived 6 months of captivity and torture, kept alive by dreams of her. 

The heroine: 
She thought he was dead and moved on only to have her world fall apart once again. 

Two people who have been hurt more than any two people should ever have to suffer. Can they find redemption and healing with each other or will another threat shatter what’s left of them? 
A tortured hero. 
A grieving heroine. 
A serial rapist who won’t give up. 

Warning: This book features graphic sexual violence which some readers could find disturbing. 

Before the Mission Begins 
Before his mission began, he went home. 24 hours to say goodbye to his twin sister. 

Instead he found her. A girl that was nothing like the one he thought he knew. 

They have 24 hours. 24 hours before he deploys on an extremely dangerous mission. 24 hours together in a freak West Texas snowstorm. 24 hours that will have to get them both through the awful next year. 

When the resident good-girl decides to take on the visiting bad-boy, 24 hours is all it takes to change their lives forever. 

This is the story of the 24 hours that no one knew ever occurred…until now.

 

Cover Reveal for Mudflap Undercover and a Contest!

It’s time for a cover reveal!

Christi Snow and M.F. Smith are working hard on the second installment for the Foxtrot Team series! Mudflap Undercover is slated to come out August, 2014. They’re excited to share the cover and the blurb with you. 

So without further ado, here’s the cover for Mudflap Undercover, (Book 2 Foxtrot Team Series)!

 

All proceeds from this novel will benefit Lubbock, TX area volunteer fire departments.

 

Story Overview:

Nine months ago Mudflap Davidson got everything he never knew he wanted, his dream job…special agent for the Lubbock Foxtrot Team (LiFT) and his dream girl…sexy, super-agent Shanae Anders. But now those two things have collided in the guise of a motorcycle club turf war.

LiFT knows trouble is brewing again and they think the Alliance to Liberate Texas (ALT)is most likely behind it. They want agents on hand when it all goes down.

As a result, Shanae has spent the last six months working undercover in the Intrepids Motorcycle Club posing as DEA agent, Slade Montgomery’s, girlfriend. So far, Mudflap has been relegated to the surveillance truck where he spends his days watching his girl hang off another guy’s arm. Good times.

So when an opportunity falls into Mudflap’s lap to go undercover himself, he jumps at it. The problem…he’s undercover with the rival Mambas Motorcycle Club. Now the violence is heating up. But will both Shanae and Mudflap come out of it unscathed? They are no longer working together, but are, in fact, at opposite ends of the gun…

Amnesia & Sociology 101

I’ve always been a creative person and as such, went to college studying creative things (I started out as an architecture major but graduated with the equivalent of a fashion design degree), but my favorite class in college had absolutely nothing to do with creativity…it was freshman sociology.

Sociology (and this definition is TOTALLY my interpretation of the field) is the study of why people act and react to their world the way that they do. Basically, how our environment affects the way that we react to things and develop as a person. I personally believe that much of our personalities we are born with, but how we respond to events in our world is based upon our own personal life experiences. Our life experiences train us to behave and react in certain ways.

That idea is where this book came from. I am a huge male/male romance reader! Easily 40-50% of the books I read are m/m. And my favorite trope is definitely the guy who’s been hiding in the closet or just discovered that he’s actually gay.

But what would happen if suddenly that guy who was in the closet woke up one day and didn’t remember that he wasn’t supposed to be gay? What if every reason behind why he was in the closet was suddenly wiped from his memory?

That’s where this book idea came from.

Trevor and Jamie are best friends and have been that way for 14 years. Jamie is gay; Trevor is straight. They’ve been having issues with their friendship lately because Jamie is in love with Trevor. Having to watch Trevor sleep with one random woman after another has taken its toll. Jamie can’t do it anymore.

But after a fall on a mountain trail, Trevor wakes up from a coma with absolutely no recollection of the man he was before the accident and the absolute surety that he’s gay. He can’t understand how that wasn’t true before his fall, too.

Like all my books, this is a romantic suspense and it has the normal danger/bad guy scenario going on (Trevor works as an investigator for the Forestry Service and was in the midst of a huge investigation when he got hurt). But the true suspense story in this book is what did Trevor forget that pushed him into the closet in the first place? And how could he have hidden that from his gay best friend for 14 years? And after hiding that kind of secret, how can Jamie ever trust him again?

I’m so excited about this book. This is my first foray into full-length m/m romantic suspense and I hope you all like it as much as I enjoyed writing it. This is the first in a 4-6 book series. All the books will be m/m romantic suspense and each book will feature different couples. A lot of the coming characters are introduced in this book.

And it releases this week…March 19th.

Amazon Pre-order link…only $2.99  (ebook)

Re-adjusting my release schedule…

Hello, everyone! I hope that you all had a great holiday. We had a good one here, although judging by my house we’re still celebrating. Yes, my tree is STILL up. I know, I should be ashamed to type that, but you know….it’s just a fact of my life now. I’m busy. Luckily my husband is understanding about it and knows how crazy my life is…although he did mention it this morning so I probably should do something about it soon…well, at least before Valentine’s day.

What has had me so busy? Well, writing. Yay, but whoa am I feeling behind. I’ll be honest with you guys….I screwed up here. I’ve been actively writing on two books the last few months…THROUGH THE VEIL and SNOWCROFT LOST. On one hand, that’s good because TTV is 1st draft done while SCL will be at that point in two days. But because I wasn’t concentrating on one or the other, it’s going to mean that they both come out a little later than I had hoped…and that pushes ALL my releases for the year back.

And because I love my husband and family, I need to relieve some of the pressure here. So I’ve come to the hard decision to push the release of RIGHT BY YOUR SIDE to the fall. I know, I hate that too, but I think it’s best so that I can make sure you all receive the best writing I’m capable of giving you.

So here’s my tentative release schedule for 2014 (and remember, this is always subject to change. Maybe I’ll surprise you and release early or throw another surprise for the year in there…hehe):

Snowcroft Lost – March, 2014

Through the Veil – May, 2014

Mudflap UnderCover – August, 2014

Right By Your Side – Fall, 2014

Release Day for The Christmas Top!

A year ago, I was playing with the idea of writing an m/m (male/male love story) novel. I adore reading m/m, but have never actually written anything like that before. So Mia Downing challenged me to write a novella, just to test the waters. The below release is the result of that. I wrote it over Christmas break 2012 for one of my all-time favorite serial lines….Decadent Publishing 1 Night Stand.

For those of you not familiar with the line, Madame Eve runs the service for a 1 Night Stand. It’s a matchmaking service and Madame Eve has somewhat mystical matchmaking powers and abilities to match people. An HEA is almost guaranteed although her customers rarely realize that’s even a possibility.
 

For my story, she matched up two men that have a past together but never saw their match coming. I hope you all enjoy meeting Jason Wieland (pediatrician) and Mark Cummins (NFL Offensive Coordinator) as they find that One Night can lead to so much more…..

BTW, this is a novella and can EASILY be read in less than an hour. Perfect for the busy holidays.

 

Blurb for The Christmas Top


All he wants for Christmas…
It’s time for Mark Cummins to come out of the closet. He’s ready, but he’s never been topped. Asking Madame Eve for the one-night stand of his fantasies, he hopes she can grant his Christmas wish.

 

He’s a less-than-merry gentleman…
Jason Wieland’s life partner died in a horrific hate crime two years before and he hasn’t taken a lover since. He knows it’s time, and he reaches out to the 1Night Stand dating service to find the right man to light up his holiday. But when masculine, sexy, and extremely straight Mark shows up, he doesn’t know what to do. Is this 1Night Stand a cruel joke or has Madame Eve truly worked Christmas magic?

Excerpt
“Listen, you seem like a nice guy, but I think Madame Eve must have made a mistake here. I don’t think we’re compatible.” He started to stand, but Mark’s hand on his arm halted him.

“Wait. I don’t know what I did wrong, but I don’t think she made a mistake. I’m incredibly attracted to you.”

Jason lowered into his chair with a reluctant sigh. “So, you’re telling me you’re gay.” He winced. He hadn’t meant to attack the guy, but he wouldn’t be made a fool of, either.

“Yes. Why would you think otherwise?” His brows furrowed. “Why else would I be here?”

Running a hand through his hair, Jason tried to get a read off the other guy. Was he just bored and out to try something new? That couldn’t be it, could it? “Is this some sort of mid-life sexual experiment for you? Have you even been with another guy before?”

“I don’t know where you’re getting all this from. I certainly haven’t had this type of issue with other guys. Usually they’re fine with me wanting to hook up with them. What did you think this was? Madame Eve sets up one-night stands. I’m not looking for a commitment.” He narrowed his eyes. “You know what…never mind, I shouldn’t have come. I never should have accepted the invitation. Whenever something sounds too good to be true, it usually is. I wish I could say ‘nice to meet you, Sidney,’ but unfortunately now I wish I’d stayed home for the holidays with my family.”

Jason didn’t miss the flash of hurt and disappointment on his face as he stalked away. Damn, that appeared genuine. A knot settled low in his belly. Had he misjudged the situation? He played back over the evening as he took off in a jog after Mark.

Title: The Christmas Top
Genre: Contemporary Romance novella (m/m)
Series: 1NS (Decadent Publishing One Night Stand series)
Projected release date: Dec, 2013

Story Overview:
Mark Cummins knows it’s time for him to come out of the closet, but he has one fantasy that he’s never had fulfilled. He’s never been topped. When he receives his invitation from Madame Eve for a 1 Night Stand, he knows this is just the Christmas gift that he needs.

Jason Wieland’s life partner died in a horrific hate crime two years ago. He hasn’t taken a lover since. When his best friend, Molly Cummins, sets him up with Madame Eve’s service, he knows it’s time to get back into the dating world. He just isn’t sure what to do with the extremely masculine, extremely sexy, and extremely straight Mark when he shows up. He’s been fodder for Jason’s fantasy life since high school.

Is this some Christmas magic or a cruel idea of a joke? Only Madame Eve and her magical intuition know….


Title: Through the Veil
Genre: Paranormal Romantic Suspense
Series: Through the Veil #1
Projected release date: Winter, 2014 (estimating Jan, 2014)

Story Overview:
58 years ago a gorge opened up from Mobile, AL to Quebec City, Canada to split the United States into the Western States (WS) and the Eastern States (ES).

40 years later, a fog rolled in on the WS that they called the Veil. Within twelve hours it formed an impenetrable wall between the two sides.
